SPECT Imaging

Single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) imaging is a nuclear imaging technology (also referred to as molecular imaging) that produces images showing how organs work.

A Tc99m SPECT cardiac exam showing myocardial perfusion in the heart.

Technetium-99m is primarily used for the detection of cancer and to assess perfusion defects in the heart caused by heart attacks or other conditions.
